These times call for deeper compassion and courage.

At The Moment Institute, we are grounded in the ancient wisdom we carry and the deep thinking we have done to prepare ourselves and thousands of practitioners we have developed to rise to the challenges before us. 

In addition to leading the Institute, David works with a few individual and organizational clients each year. It is a unique opportunity to work directly with the founder of Narrative Coaching and Integrative Development. 

David only works with clients who want to re-invent how they serve people and communities to create a more inclusive and sustainable future. He loves working with them because they value both enlightenment and pragmatism, and they are willing to cross their own thresholds.


We help organizations take a more integrative approach to learning, development and change.

Wouldn’t it be great to partner with an expert who has integrated OD, training and coaching into a single practice? Dr. David Drake founded Integrative Development because it (1) saved clients money and time; (2) offered a more relevant experience; and (3) yielded better, sustained results.

We are in a brave new world now. David helps organizations to use more integrative approaches to developing their people and furthering their purpose. More real conversations, less fake work.

David brings 30 years of global experience in change and coaching and a powerful yet simple approach perfect for now. He is a wise thought partner who can help you navigate the Unknown and chart a new course.

We help individuals and teams to free more of their potential.

David works with clients who are seeking to break through to the next phase of their life and/or work. They are mature enough to lean into their shadow, wrestle with their truth, and release what no longer serves them. 

You will be invited into serious play through which you can have new experiences not collect more explanations, and experiment now not set goals for later. All of David's rich and diverse background is available to you.

Being coached by David is a unique and powerful experience that clients never forget. It is like having your own retreat through which you will find healing, wholeness and a path to make a difference.

There is a fixed fee for each four-hour block of work with David. You decide how many blocks you want and how you want to divide up and use your time.

David designed and facilitated a bespoke leadership program for 150 leaders at the top of a state government — as the pandemic started and fires burned. It was focused on real-time conversations not a pre-set curriculum.

David taught a 10-month online narrative coaching program that taught over 1,000 coaches, and he has been an online instructor for 20 years.

David worked with a provider of disability services for children to embed coaching in how work was done and transform their culture and service delivery system using integrative development.

David has partnered with a state government agency in Australia to design and deliver a narrative coaching-based leadership program for Aboriginal leaders for 4 years.

David partnered closely with PwC for three years, contributing his extraordinary coaching skills and expertise to assist us in crafting and driving a significant cultural change journey for the Firm with coaching at its foundation. His wise counsel, combined with a genuine interest in people, deep experience with OD and commercial acumen, make him a trusted business advisor to us.

David Drake is visionary, looks for and brings out the best in others, and always leaves people better off than when he found them. He is a smart and cogent business partner. He helped me motivate 60 trainers and subject matter experts to effectively tell their story in service of resolving a global IT issue. David's work is valuable to any organization today.
